Letting Your Fabric Work For You

I've always been a big fan of quilts in which the pattern of the fabric does most of the design work.  Such quilts are generally simple to piece, but require a great deal of imagination to create.  I saw several quilts at the Houston show that performed this feat magnificently.

This first quilt is what inspired me to buy that large scale African print.

And lest you be fool enough to think that this is a new item in the quilters' bag of tricks, here's a stunner from the 1840's!
